Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

Welcome to Huxlow Science College

At Huxlow Science College we believe that school days are precious and form the foundations for our students’ future lives. We have a determination to ensure that our students are given the best possible opportunities to succeed both academically and as young people who are an asset to the communities in which they live. Our community is rightly very proud of our school, our students and their successes. We have a rich history of students of all abilities and backgrounds fulfilling their potential in all areas of their education and they are supported and challenged daily to gain the skills, confidence and qualifications they will need to be successful in an ever-changing world.

We pride ourselves on the levels of support and guidance we offer our students and place students and their needs at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to ensure students are happy, feel safe and are taught well. Developing ‘The Whole Child’ is one of our core responsibilities and our students are challenged to aim for the highest personal and academic standards. We have high expectations of behaviour and respect across our community and forge excellent relationships with both students and parents.

I am hugely proud to be the Headteacher of Huxlow Science College and to lead the school as we build on recent increases in both student numbers and exam results. It is such a privilege to be entrusted with the lives of the young people in our community, to shape their characters and enable their success.

We look forward to welcoming all prospective students, parents and carers to experience all that is Huxlow in the very near future.

Anti Bullying Week 11th-15th November

Anti Bullying Week 2019 took place between the 11th and 15th November.   It is used as an opportunity to reinforce the messages about how bullying is not acceptable at all and encourage students to "Choose Kindness" and stand up to bullying.

Huxlow staff and students took part in Odd Socks Day on Tuesday 12th November.  The day is designed to be fun and an opportunity for people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality!

As part of the day, United Vibe (X Factor finalists) visited the school, to perform their latest single which is about Anti Bullying and answer questions.   Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event and the band used the opportunity to talk to students about their school experiences, and ambitions.   They encouraged the students to aim to be the best that they can and to look out for each other.

A member of staff said " I can quite honestly say they were amazing, both vocally and with their down to earth attitude.  Humble and very polite.   They had loads of time for the students to get autographs...great role models.

One Year 7 student said "Today was the best day at school eve, I'm so glad I came to Huxlow."
